He has erected chicken wire on the top of the drystone wall he built last year, around the entire front of the garden.
Posts have been put into cement and stone around the top part of the garden, to which chicken wire will be fixed. To make this secure, he has also had to rebuild the wall right at the back where it borders Sevke's garden. This will be the enclosed area for the chickens, when we eventually get them.
I wanted "small" steps down to the front garden. Mr A has built very large ones. OK I thought they were a bit much at first, but I'm getting used to them.
The concreted area under which lies the septic tank, has now been extended, to form the base for a new gazebo, and metal posts have been erected. Mr A plans to collect bamboo canes from the village and make a "roof". A grape vine already exists to one side of the planned gazebo and this will be encouraged to grow over the top.
The strange object on the wall in the picture below is what he actually made (out of stone and cement). It's actually rather nice in a rustic kind of way. But it is so heavy that I can't even move it, let alone lift it. It would certainly be impossible to put it on a stand for the birds to use.
So now it has become something entirely different. I had been putting bread and scraps on it for the birds, along with water, but a couple of days ago I noticed that some cats had taken rather a shine to it. They were desperately hungry, so I put some of Poppy's small dog biscuits on it. The food disappeared in no time.
I now have three cats to feed. (If you feed any animal once, in my opinion, you have to continue to do so).
So I now have a cat table. Maybe the bird table will follow in due course...who knows?
